Reisa River Norway
There are few rivers on this planet where you are more likely to contact such big salmon as those that run the Reisa. It is a land carved by the giants for giants. And, unlike many Norwegians rivers, it is now in good safe conservation-minded hands and improving all the time.
The Reisa river weaves its way through narrow ravines within the Reisa National Park before cascading down the Imo Falls and winding its journey down the beautiful Reisa Valley. From the Imo Falls, the landscape develops into a splendid, gradually widening canyon. A number of tributaries cascade from the cliff edges – the most magnificent being the Mollis Falls (total height of 269 metres). The lower part of the Reisa valley is fertile agriculture and forestry land.
Reisastua Lodge and salmon fishing on the Reisa
Reisastua Lodge offers a rare opportunity to fish a river that combines the best qualities and features of the Alta, Gaula, Orkla, Stjørdal and other Norwegian rivers. The lower parts offer superb fishing with inviting 150-200 metre pools and good wading conditions – the place for classic fly fishing.
The upper part, with the spectacular scenic canyon and cascading waterfalls, offers a different ‘stop and try this pool’ approach; river guides beach their long, sleek riverboats before recommending their chosen hot-spot.
Big Flies = Big Fish!
Reisastua Lodge is a timber/stone lodge, built in traditional Norwegian country style and located in a beautiful setting overlooking the river and half-way up the salmon running stretch. On the ground floor there is a large combined lounge/dining area and kitchen. Three bedrooms, separated from the lounge/dining area, and sharing one large bathroom/toilet make up the rest of the ground floor. There are two bedrooms and one good size bathroom/toilet on the first floor. The five bedrooms sleep four to five guests comfortably.
There is also a good size sauna, laundry room and outdoor Jacuzzi. Outside, between the lodge and the annexe, facing the river and landscape beyond, is a spacious veranda. The basement of the annexe contains generous space for fishing equipment, clothing and freezer capacity for kept catches.
Northern Norway is famous for its abundant fish and game supplies. The cooks, Wenke and Vidar, are particularly keen on making the most of produce from nature’s larder, so anglers can look forward to very good, fresh and nourishing food.
